Mr. Brainwash: Old Editions - Consultation of early Mr. Brainwash artworks. Works of art are available in this Section for Consultation only and are not for Sale.
The new Mr. Brainwash Editions are available in the dedicated section!
The first works created by street artist, Mr. Brainwash, encapsulate the style and subjects that we continue to admire today in the artist’s unique works. As also can be seen in the old editions, Mr. Brainwash fuses both Pop Art and Street Art within his works. He pays homage to celebrities such as Muhammed Ali, Madonna, and David Bowie, and also references great masters of contemporary art such as Jeff Koons.
A notable difference between the old editions made by the artist between 2008 and 2018 is the near absence of colour. He preferred black and white subjects with the occasional splash of colour.
These old editions became a fundamental starting point for the artist in the development of the unique works we know today. From the iconic Einstein to the child featured in the work Smile, Mr. Brainwash began to explore the development of the subjects that have made him known on an international level.
Several of the old editions show subjects that have become iconic in Mr. Brainwash’s artistic production. From works such as Love is the Answer to Just Kidding to Everyday Life, Smile, and Juxtapose.
The backdrop of bright colours and references to artists such as Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Keith Haring has developed over time. This is thanks to increasingly diverse and joyous works.
Unique works are not only created on paper but featured on walls and iconic spray cans, creating works full of positivity on different mediums.
Mr. Brainwash draws inspiration for his works from mass culture and popular subjects. In Just Kidding, first on silkscreen and later on the wall, Mr. Brainwash depicts the well-known comedian and silent film legend Charlie Chaplin from his self-directed film, The Kid, from 1921.
The subjects that Mr. Brainwash decides to portray in the old editions include famous people who marked the 20th century such as Martin Luther King, Salvador Dali, and Muhammad Ali. He also includes modern-day icons such as Madonna, Marilyn Monroe, and Barack Obama.
